COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 2008, Stone Brewmasters Steve Wagner and Mitch Steele traveled to Belgium, where they enjoyed a number of hop-forward Belgian tripels, pale ales and IPAs—beers that had taken a cue from the U.S. craft brewing movement and inspired us in return. It’s a big reason 2008’s summer season came to be known at Stone as our “Summer of the Triple.” Upon their return, they crafted Stone 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale, the seventh beer in the 11-beer Stone Vertical Epic Ale series. Packed with floral, spicy essence from Belgian yeast plus plenty of hoppy New World character, it’s our West Coast take on hop-driven Belgian beers.

Flaska från SB. Ska vara lite både och (US och Belgien) men blir nästan varken eller. Ingen humlebomb och inte jättetydlig trippelkaraktär heller. Men iaf närmare en trippel och en helt okej sådan. Lätt blommig aningien kryddig, välbalanserad. Trevlig.

clear golden... nice ribbons of lace. The aroma has a really fruity quality along with some pine...amarillos?? Flavor is bananas and pink bubblegum.. very fruity.. not as much pine and citrus as expected... actually fairly balanced IMHO. Dry finish.. tropical fruit as it warms.

Bottle from Wegman's Fairfax. Pours golden with a thin white head. Biscuity on the nose. Lots of hop notes on the tongue combine nicely with the Belgian yeast notes. Finished clean. Hides it's booze well. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2008
On tap at Brasserie V - Madison. Poured clear bright golden with a well-retained cap of white head. The aroma was spicy with pears, mangoes, and passion fruit upfront followed closely by a bunch of white pepper and clovey yeast character.. quite fragrant with much more citrusy hoppage present at this point in time.. I think the elements will balance out (hops and yeast) in 6-12 months, and then the yeast will dry it out and change the beer greatly.. can’t wait to check that theory. The flavor had juicy passion fruit and pineapple at the core laced with banana and white peppery esters.. spicier on the back with white pepper leading. Medium-bodied and spicy on the palate.. solid feel and very drinkable.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Golden yellow hazy pour with a thin white head. Maybe I’m seeing things but I swear there’s a slight green tint to the beer. Very spicy aroma - peppery and floral with some lemon citrus. Spicy flavor - cardamom and clove. Malty with a touch of yeast and citrus hops. A bit of grapefruit on the finish and alcohol. Crisp and refreshing, although theres a very bitter alcohol finish which dries the mouth.
